Use this free tool to view your 3D VTK (Visualization Toolkit) files online without needing to install any software.
Our tool can load most binary and text based VTK files. If you are looking to convert your 2D image files to 3D STL files then we have a 2D to 3D conversion tool here.
Here are 2 simple steps to display your VTK file in any web browser.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your VTK file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the VTK to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all VTK to STL conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the VTK file you submit to us. The resulting STL file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our VTK to STL tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our VTK conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||Visualization Toolkit|
The VTK file format is a 3D modelling and graphics format supported by the Visualization Toolkit. Created in the '90s the Visualization Toolkit provides a series of data and visual tools for advanced 3D modelling applications. Some example functions of the toolkit include polygon simplification, mesh repair and smoothing and more.
The format has evolved over the years. Starting out as a simple text-based format that could be edited within a simple text editor. Additional features have been added over the years with the most recent version of the format supporting an Xml based format.
